Make unique and creative flower designs. Choose a petal color and style; then drag the mouse inside the flower box to create your own flower. If the design isn't up to par, click "undo last petal" to erase. Other options include increasing and decreasing opacity of the color and number of petals to include. Multiple colors can be used in a single flower by adding petals onto the design. When the design is complete, it can be shared via email with others or directly on the site (with a title and name of city). Noe: the email window opens as a pop-ip, so you will need to allow pop-ups from this site. Once the email window is open, you can also COPY the image by right-clicking it tand choosing COPY image to paste it into a document, slide, etc. You don't even have to SEND the email. Other designs can be viewed by choosing the "load a flower" option to the right of the design screen.

In the Classroom

Save this site in your favorites on your class computers. Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Allow students to create their own designs and use those drawings as inspiration for an art project. Show them how to copy/paste from the "send by email" pop-up. Encourage re-creating flowers shared by others as a way to study shape, color, radial symmetry, and design. Create flowers to teach about analogous and complementary color schemes. In a language arts class, allow students to create poems or short rhymes to accompany their created flowers. Make Mothers Day email messages, cards, or thank you notes using these images. Teach letter writing or email "etiquette" at the same time.
